Abstract

Value-Based Education (VBE) is rooted in values, religion, morals, culture, and character moulding for all-inclusive growth. Ideals and attitudes are key aspects of cognitive knowledge and are significant in achieving and enhancing harmony across communities. Value-based education promotes values for all-inclusive education that enhances global citizenship and patriotism. These may be incorporated into learning institutional curriculums to augment value formation. Significantly, value education brings forth social justice, sustainable development, common humanity, progression of vital principles, and impartiality for harmonious co-existence. There is a necessity to channel out citizens who are capable of responding to upcoming challenges. The objective of this discourse is to evaluate how VBE might be entrenched in learning institutions’ curricula as part of the paradigm shift in the already coxed changes in our education systems in the context of the competency-based curriculum. The review procedure involved in this discourse included documentation and examination of literature mirroring educational values and global citizenship. Comparative evaluation and Qualitative description were utilized to cross-examine the role of VBE in enhancing harmonious living and accelerating economic growth. This discourse established that values shape character which in turn augment academic attainment, collaboration, and unity, fortify associations, and accelerate the realization of sustainable development.
